her entire life. her name is yvonne thomas. thank you so much for being with me today. you and i were standing just down the street as this entire area was filled with hundreds and hundreds of people. can you tell me what that experience was like for you seeing that? >> it was the most beautiful thing i've never seen in my life. i've never seen so many different cultures from caucasian, indian everybody, all one body having a good time and just wasn't no fighting there wasn't -- it was happy. having fun. and this i had never seen in my 51 years i live in baltimore, maryland i've never seen anything like that before in my life. it was just a wonderful, wonderful thing to see. >> reporter: you're standing right in front of the cvs where there was a different scene on monday. >> right. >> reporter: about a week ago. >> right. >> reporter: what do you say to folks who came into this area and did some of this, and what are you hoping to see in the future? >> i hope the cvs get rebuilt. most people get their medicine
4:06 pm
from the cvs, get their medicine. most of the seniors in that building right there have no whey to get their medicine. they get their toiletries. it's close to their home. i hope they rebuild it and rebuild downtown. rebuild everything that got burnt and just be a happy baltimore. i just want to be a happy baltimore again. >> reporter: how hard will that be? because some people will argue that it was not a happy baltimore before. >> right. i hope and pray through all this it will be a better baltimore. and be a happy baltimore. everybody get along, you know neighborhood get along with other neighborhoods. be like one big happy family. if it's possible. >> reporter: you saw that yesterday. i mean you kept commenting on the fact that you were watching that happen. >> yes, yes. i kept watching and people having -- even little kids out there dancing, having fun. didn't care what color they was how big they were. everybody. having a good time. >> reporter: can you describe what this neighborhood is like normally on a day not like today or yesterday? >> people go about their business. go to the store.
4:07 pm
go here. go there. and do their -- throughout the day. but go back to their normal life. they will go to their normal life. >> reporter: do you think the city leaders are now listening in a different way than they did before this happened with freddie gray? >> yes, they listen to the young people. the young people got a voice now. they actually listening. you know at first they wasn't listening. maybe it took this for them to listen. but now they're listening, sitting down talking to them. you know pastors coming out talking to them. they actually listen to the kids. >> reporter: thank you so much. >> they have a voice. the kids have a voice. >> reporter: thank you, lived in baltimore, maryland, 51 years, her entire life talking about the fact she never saw anything like what happened last night, when the community came together in such a big, a big way. poppy? >> and i'm so glad we're here and also sara from the youth of this city one of the young students telling me we're being
4:08 pm
heard now and we have a lot to say. it's a conversation that needs to be happening. sara, thanks so much for that. i want to bring in my panel, tom fuentes, former fbi deputy director and defense attorney danny cevallos and neil frank plin who also served for the baltimore police department. guys thaunknk you for being here. i want your perspective from law enforcement and legal perspective. tom fuentes, lifting the curfew is what people are celebrating right now. was it the right call at the right time? >> i think so. it's wonderful hearing what's going on out here tonight. the drum beat. i played drum in school. i love it. the guardsmen behind us clapping it's the universal language. it's coming through tonight here. >> danny cevallos was dancing. >> that was supposed to remain off camera poppy. how dare you. this is what the first amendment was designed for, the glory of freedom of speech and freedom of assembly. this is the entire idea behind
4:09 pm
that precious amendment to the constitution. it's really a special thing here tonight. >> neil, as someone who served with the baltimore police, you left you were fired in 2004. >> full disclosure i asked to be fired because the story needed to be told. >> i'm glad you corrected me there, sir. as someone who was an officer in this city are you hopeful from what you're seeing transpire now? >> well not just someone who worked as a police officer here as a head of training in baltimore, but i grew up in this town. my mother still lives in the same house she's been in for 55 years in reservoir hill. so you know i'm very happy to see this. i'm very happy that the curfew has been lifted. i think that's what part of this celebration is about. and as tom said earlier, returning back to normal which is motte realnot really what we need we need to go beyond normal as it relates to conditions here. the young people are heard tonight. that's extremely important. their voice is being heard.
4:10 pm
the police officers who want to report wrong jng doinggoing, we need a place for them to be heard. i saw a sign earlier. >> it's an important point. you need police. communities need police. i heard some people say this week we can police ourselves. nost that's not what this nation is built on. it needs to be done in a constructive way. tom fuentes, you were angered yesterday of the comments you heard at the rally held at city hall. you said it was anarchy. >> a man was shouting out here yesterday for almost two straight hours was advocating we need no police, police are pigs spigs everybody in jail should be let out. that's the definition of anarchy. the downside of that is horrible, unspeakunspeakable. what we need are these kids out here now that came dancing by us 10 feet away and the drumbeat and the music and the chanting is beautiful. that's what we need. >> quickly before i go danny, from a legal perspective, the mayor has said they will prosecute the people responsible for the violences. the looting.
4:11 pm
how important is it that that actually is followed through to send a message you may be angry but you can't react in that way? >> it's critically important. not only to deter future conduct like that but to assure those who peacefully protest that the police are cutting out, they're making a differentiation between those who are committing lawful acts and protesting lawfully and those people that are committing crime. it's important from a deterrent effect to prosecute the offend offenders. >> danny, neill, tom, thank you vur very much. when you look at the city, everyone is asking what is next for the city of blorksaltimore a city that's seen looting and a city that's seen unity after the death of freddie gray? we're going to talk about what's next for baltimore, straight ahead. t-mobile is breaking the rules of wireless. and the samsung galaxy s6 edge is breaking the rules of design. can't get your hands on it because

you're taking a look at crowds gathering here at city hall today in baltimore, enjoying a moment a day of peace, a day of celebration, a day of apparent healing and coming together. marching bands in the streets. nick valencia is with a person who organized this display of baltimore spirit. nick for the first time in half an hour i can hear myself think because the marching bands were so loud. it was a beautiful sight. >> reporter: oh, it was so impressive. we owe a lot of that gratitude and scene to the next woman wire we're about to introduce you to. nisha chase. you told me this is what baltimore is all about, right? >> right. basically this is like 26 different marching bands in the community. we represent each community in baltimore city. we've been doing this for about at least about 45 years. marching been in existence for
4:16 pm
45 years in baltimore city. you know, the mayor has taken away our rec centers she's taken away our funding for our kids. we've been doing this a lot of the marching band directors, we do this out of love out of our own pockets. the mayor, she don't help us. you know the city don't help us. we came together to show that we need our rec centers opened. we came today to show that we need funding. all these kids that's out here today, they could be doing anything wrong. anything. they could be robbing, they could be looting right now. but we just showed that we come in peace. that we really come if peace and we need the mayor to open up and to come into this rec centers and show us that she love us like we love baltimore city. >> reporter: nisha, we've been here all day and i've not seen as many smiles as i saw when year marching band showed up. this is something, a moment of encouragement for the city when it needed it the most. >> well yeah. they're our babies. she's 2. >> reporter: what's your name? gosh aren't you beautiful? what's your name?
4:17 pm
she's a little camera shy. >> we came out to really show the community, really show the mayor that this is what we're about. we serve you. we -- you know we take these children off the street. one band might hold about 150 members. if we take 150 youth off the street and you have 26 bands, how much youth is that? that's a lot of youth. if you open up these rec centers and give us funding a lot of the problems that you're having guess what would be resolved but until you do that you're going to have problems with the youth. you're going to have it. right now, we on her grass, we're showing her we need the support, that we need the help and if she don't see this now, guess what she don't love us. >> reporter: it's certainly a labor of love for you. nesha chase thanks for what you do for the city of baltimore and this incredible poppy, we're going to send it back to you. >> nick thanks so much.
4:18 pm
that little girl is too cute. so let's talk about how baltimore heal moving forward. what change needs to happen. you heard some of the complaints there from that woman that nick just spoke with. people here want change and they want it fast. it doesn't always happen fast but they want to see progress. let's bring in a big local voice here in baltimore, radio host mark. thanks for being here. >> my pleasure. >> good to have you on tonight. look we heard from the young woman who said the mayor took away our rec centers. i don't know all the local politics. this isn't my town. this is your town. what is needed? >> rec centers have been closed. there are no places for kids in most communities to go, in neighbor neighborhoods to play basketball have tutoring. >> a budget issue? >> it's a budget issue but also a lack of creative thinking. i mean you can hire people and bring people from communities into that. police can do it off hours. teachers can work off hours. brought in to run the rec centers. doesn't have to be a large budget item if they don't have it. they can make that work. we don't think creatively about
4:19 pm
city issues. >> tease are elected leaders are, people elected by the people they represent. >> i think what you're seeing here though is something that's moving for something very different. feeling like a demock ski mokmocracy bubbling up from the bottom and will be different, and different in the 2016 elections. going to be huge. just like when they elected the state's attorney she was elected because it was an upsurge and uproar over police behavior. that brought the bernstein loss and why mosby won. >> so interesting, if you look back to 1965 right, and look back to the voting rights act, the way to make your voice heard is to vote, right? so talk to me about how this is going to effect 2016 how many youth that can now vote in this city you think will? >> there's been a massive voting registration campaign. the voting rights act didn't happen until things like this happened. people sacrificed their lives, sat in got hurt got killed to make voting rights happen. people are standing up now to
4:20 pm
make things change. you're going to see a movement build in the next few years that's never been before in this city. the potential, anyway. >> how is it different, the youth getting involved in voting? >> nobody votes. the turnout is extremely low in baltimore, 12%, 13% in the last election. there's nothing. there's new energy here. we'll see if that translates itself into that kind of voting power and see the drum corps you have out here? this little piece of baltimore, this is baltimore. baltimore, new orleans, are the only two places in the country that have this. this is huge in our communities. >> beautiful to see marc. thanks so much. >> always. >> a local voice from here. i appreciate it. the baltimore community is asking for help, reaching out for help rebuilding structurally and emotionally. if you'd like to help some of the 200 businesses destroyed on monday night in the rioting go to again, some parts of baltimore are mired in poverty. it's really stunning when you look at some of these numbers.

[♪] the voice of the wild within. the unrest sparked by the death of freddie gray here in baltimore has not only put a spotlight on that case it's put
4:25 pm
a spotlight on poverty and on unemployment in a number of urban areas here. let's talk about it. joining me retired maryland state particularolice officer and former officer with the baltimore police neill franklin also with me robert valentine who is a veteran and who has also served as a mediator in these recent weeks between police and protesters. guys, thank you for being here. i wanted to just dig into some of the numbers because i think they're really important and em emblematic of what's going on. look at sometownamtown part of west baltimore, where freddie gray lived, "the new york times" reporting that part of baltimore has twice the rate of poverty, unemployment homicides, shootings per capita. you're a baltimore police officer. why is it that some people here are so much worse off than the rest of the city? >> well, i think there are a number of factors that come into play. number one here in baltimore, certain parts of the city have
4:26 pm
never recovered from the 1968 riots. in addition to that we have policies of drug enforcement in this country, extremely central to this. i mean it's not the only thing, but it's one leg of the three-legged stool. we have poverty conditions education conditions we have health issues. but we have never properly dealt with the so-called war on drugs. we place criminal justice first, when this is a public health issue. we shouldn't be using cops to solve a public health issue. >> listen to this two decades ago, city officials injected more than $130 million into samtown, right? the part of baltimore where freddie gray lived and the part of baltimore that is dealing with such inequity and, you know a number of problems high homicide rate et cetera. you look at it even after that injection of money, things haven't changed. why is that? >> you take one little area and inject all of this money, but you haven't dealt with the
4:27 pm
surrounding issues. in the bordering neighborhoods that filter in i mean you can't just you know pick one small community and not deal with the other outlying communities at the same time because it filters in. you know -- >> then you're saying it's money wasted. >> i believe it's money wasted. still when we're dumping so much money into criminal justice, when we can be using that for health and education and other issues. the other side of that coin is because of our criminal justice policies and drug enforcement, we're arresting so many people. do you know what one arrest does to a family? you send that whole family to prison. >> do we have to arrest -- i mean -- >> you've seen the numbers on arrests, right? going back to 2005 in this city. 108,000 arrests. yes, i know some of them were multiple arrests. >> the population of baltimore. >> absolutely. we can't survive that. this community can't survive those types of numbers. we have to get law enforcement out of this business of drug enforcement, these low-level drug offenses and bring in
4:28 pm
health practitioners, treatment programs and education to deal with our -- >> robert valentine, as a member of the community who's lived here for years, do you agree with neill that officers have to get out of the business of drug enforcement? isn't it also important to enforce, you know i'm not talking about just marijuana here i'm talking about more severe drugs, heroin cocaine? i mean at some point, don't you need enforcement on that front? >> let them be the faraparamilitary let the families clean up house raise hell with their children. >> here's the thing. sometimes parents aren't there or aren't involved? >> why aren't they there? >> the thing is you have to give them the support from the state, from the council here give them that support to back them up let them know they aren't alone. >> on that front, i want to read something that stood out to me on the front page article from "the new york times," one part
4:29 pm
of the community where freddie gray was from, an 18-year-old young man said he works at a foot locker could not remember how long his mother had battled addiction. my mother is 46, he said. maybe over 25 years. his father had been in prison serving a life sentence since mr. morgan was 1 year old. also lost two brothbrothers one in prison for murder one shot and killed in 2008. is that a rarity? >> no. >> if they were brought up the right way, recognize that mom and dad have their problems they still have to make a life of their own. assume responsibility for that. will make a big difference. that's it. they just need guidance. they need guidance. >> robert valentine, thank you very much. i appreciate it. neill franklin thank you very much. it's gotten loud here again as the drums, marching bands from west baltimore have started

welcome back to our live coverage from downtown baltimore
4:34 pm
where a huge celebration of marching bands from across this city is going on right now. i do want to get to some other very important news that we're tracking closely out of downtown tel-a-viv. clashes between people right on the streets there. 23 offices were hurt when a peaceful demonstration suddenly turned violent. the unrest stemming from a video of an israeli police officer striking an israeli soldier in uniform who is of ethiopian descent. cnn correspondent oren lieberman swrn n liebermann joins us from downtown tel-a-viv. oren what's the situation now? >> reporter: it has finally quieted down on the streets of tel-a-viv and in rabin square which is really the central square of tel-a-viv. it's hard to imagine as quiet as it is right now what this looked like a few hours ago. it was in a word chaotic. there were hundreds of protesters here. clashes got violent. police pulled out a number of riot dispersal methods.
4:35 pm
used water cannons, had officers on horses, stun grenades tear gas to try to break up the crowds. the crowds turned violent. smashed windows of cars. damaged cars. on the streets knocking over trash cans. this all escalated. let's talk about where this all comes from. as you mentioned that video. came out about a week ago. it shows one israeli police officer and then another walking up to an ethiopian-israeli soldier in uniform and beating him. that tipped the scales here. that's really what sparked this unrest although it comes from a simmering unrest in the ethiopian community that feel they've been discriminated against for years. the video was the tipping point. there was a thursday night demonstration in jerusalem. that led to this demonstration in tel-a-viv. it started peacefully. right around 3:30 this afternoon, there were 500 or 600 protesters where this all started. withdrew you can see those lights buildings way behind me. that's where this began as a peaceful protest. 500 or 600 protesters blocking
4:36 pm
the streets and police said, look, if this stays peaceful we'll go with it. it stayed that way. both sides there showing restraint for a number of hours but something happened there. there was a tipping point. and that's when this really exploded to the violent clashes of the evening that happened here in rabin square and on the streets around tel-a-viv. it took police hours to break it up. at the end of the night the latest numbers we have so far, 23 officers injured. and 26 arrested. although there are investigations going on those numbers could change. >> oren what has prime minister benjamin netanyahu said about this? i wonder what's happening tomorrow from you know members of the government there? >> reporter: so prime minister benjamin netanyahu released a statement a short time ago on facebook urging restraint, not the only one pushing for that. ethiopian leaders have also said show restraint, scale back don't let this turn into a violent protest. all sides really trying to keep this in check, keep it under control.
4:37 pm
tomorrow's a very big day because even before today's protests were announced, prime minister benjamin netanyahu said he would meet with leaders of the ethiopian community as well as the victim in that video to try to ease some of the tensions. this, of course, can't just be solved with a meeting. i mentioned these are long-simmering tensions. the ethiopian community feels they've been discriminated against for years. perhaps tonight's demonstrations and the demonstration thursday night in jerusalem can be the catalyst of the beginning of change for the eatthiopians feel they're not discriminated here. it depends on what comes out of the meetings. again, prime minister benjamin netanyahu meeting with leaders of the ethiopian community, meeting with the victim in the video as well as other security leaders and authorities in jerusalem. >> oren thank you very much reporting for us live there where it's the middle of the night if tel-a-viv. we'll keep a close eye on this monitor the situation for you,
4:38 pm
of course zblchblgs come. coming up next, as we return to the story in baltimore, who will lead baltimore's revival and healing after what we've seen in recent weeks? will it be baltimore's clergy ministers and pastors who have witnessed the problems and the need in their communities? they are ready to act. what are they doing? that's next. t-mobile is breaking the rules of wireless. and the samsung galaxy s6 edge is breaking the rules of design. can't get your hands on it because you're locked down by a carrier? break free t-mobile will pay every penny of your switching fees. get ahead of the curve and get your hands on the galaxy s6 edge for $0 down at t-mobile today.

we've seen the riots, we've seen the rallies. what comes next for this city? i'm poppy harlow joining you live tonight in baltimore. with me criminal defense attorney and hln legal analyst, joey jackson. former baltimore police officer, neill franklin. guys thanks for being here. as we hear the drums of the jubilant marching bands that have come to city hall certainly a change of what we've seen the past week. >> very talented by the way. >> very talented and good dancers as well. on a much more serious note look this is a community, many have risen up neill because they said former colleagues of yours, current baltimore police officers do not understand them are not there to help them. and the officers you know their job is to -- is to protect these communities.
4:43 pm
and frankly, there are a lot of good officers. so i'm wondering how you drudgebridge the gap. it's stunning to me to find there's no official survey that tracks officer-involved killings in this country. >> i did -- i started an online online -- a petition for that. for the justice department to start tracking those killings around the country. because we have no idea of how many are occurring. but, again, that's after the fact. we have to start moving forward to prevent the killing from happening in the first place. so here in baltimore, this could be ground zero for that. this could be the beginning of that. and i hope that it is. we need a formal process to begin where the voices continue to be heard, not just of our young people but of our police officers you know who want to do a good job, who want to partner with the community, who want that relationship to be established and built with the community. you know what among those ranks, there are some very good
4:44 pm
leaders already doing that and can continue to make that happen. it's been said that there's just a few police officers in among these ranks that's causing the problems for the many and making it dangerous for the many. well how do we go about getting rid of those? identifying those officers? how about creating a safe place for those officers to come forward and to speak that so we don't end up with another situation like detective joe crystal who attempted that and came out one morning and found a dead rat on his car and no longer works for the department but is in another state. >> joey jackson, to you, one of the things identify ss i've heard a lot, when i was covering the protesters in philadelphia earlier this week people in baltimore telling me the criminal justice system needs to change some protesters telling me why are so many people incarcerated for nonviolent crimes? we've heard hillary clinton, presidential candidate, address it this week in her speech at columbia. do you "a" think there needs to be a criminalhange in the criminal
4:45 pm
justice system and do you think we'll see it in the near term? >> i hope so poppy. the criminal justice system is predicated around three principles. one is punishment. the second one is deterrence. and the third one is really rehabilitation. and when you look at those, certainly people, crimes, if they're violent, need to be punished and deterrence has value in that you want those individuals committing the crimes to be deterred and specifically and general people who would commit crimes to be deterred as well. but the rehabilitation aspect is so critical and it's been so often said poppy, if you're not a criminal when you go to jail you will be one when you get out of there. and so the reality is is for nonviolent crimes and for people who have some sense of humanity and really need an opportunity and a second chance, i'm hopeful that reforms can be instituted to allow them to contribute positively to the community. >> let me ask you this and we're sort of sharing the microphone here because it is so
4:46 pm
loud. let me ask withdrew this. tom fuentes, former fbi assistant director former police officer said to me yesterday, he was very upset to hear what some of the rally yesterday here neill, were saying about we don't need the police, we can police ourselves. he said it's basically anarchy. do you believe in large part this is a community that does want to work side by side with the police and those voices are just a minority? >> well just on -- pay attention to the person who's chanting. those aren't the sentiments of the residents of baltimore city. that's not realistic. we need the police to two after violent criminals, robberies, rapes, domestic vieolenceviolence crime against our children. that's what we want the police doing. we don't want the police trying to solve our public health issues such again, as drug use. i'm going to keep coming back to that because we have to sever the pipelines of people going into prison in the first place, of people being arrested in the first place because even if they're arrested for a minor
4:47 pm
drug crime and don't do time in prison that arrest record prevents them from getting a job. as my partner said here when you go to prison if you're expecting people to come back into community and just do well all of a sudden you know you're delusional. we have to keep people from going into prison, being recruited by gangs when they're in prison then coming back out with an arrest record a conviction and they can't get a job. a good friend of mine jack says you know what, you can get over an addiction, but you'll never get over a conviction. so let's start working on these drug laws which never worked in the first place. counterproductive to public safety. because they create crime, they create violence. it's a foundation for it. then our police have to go out and deal with that. >> some would say what about the people who aren't addicted? what about the people who are just profiting from selling it as well? those people should be prosecuted. >> as i said regulate it and control it. we did this once before. we were here once before back in the 1920s.
4:48 pm
we had drive-by shootings, running gun battles and those people weren't addicted. they just wanted the money. >> neill franklin thank you very much joey jackson. got to go get a break in here. a quick break. our other top stories after this. open the box and... (sniffing) new phone smell. jump on a video chat with my friend. he's a real fan boy, so i can't wait to show this off. picture is perfect. i got mine at verizon. i... didn't. it's buffering right out of the box he was impressed. i couldn't be happier. couldn't see him but i could hear him... making fun of me. vo: now get $200 or more when you trade in your smartphone for a galaxy s6 but hurry, this offer ends may 10th. verizon.

well some say baltimore is a city with a church on every
4:52 pm
corner. baltimore's clergy may have a crucial role in the healing of the city. the mending of the frayed edges of unrest. i want to show you this scene from monday night. baltimore's church leaders holding the line standing between a story and potential looters. it's moments like these that show the power of faith-based leaders right in this community. bishop angel nunez joins me again now on the program. thanks for being with me. >> thank you for having me again. >> take me back to monday night. what was that moment like versus what we're seeing now? >> well monday night we received a call that they were asking for faith-based peacemakers to two to the location. my office is about ten minutes away so i ran down there without realizing i was walking into a major crisis. in front of me the police behind me the rioters. and just throwing things back and forth. we were in the middle. my purpose was to be a light of peace, to talk to those that
4:53 pm
were upset. i was very surprised. they would shake my hand and say thank you for being here. and then continue to riot. >> did you get the sense that a lot of the people out there, not the violent rioters, but the peaceful protesters which are the majority of them just want to be heard? really heard? they want to be heard but they want action too. you know hear what i'm saying but at the same time help me respond to that and if we don't address this we're going to face this in different parts of our nation. >> there is a huge unemployment crisis in the city especially for young black men. 37% unemployment. in parts of samtown, for example, where freddie gray is from it's double that number. >> eyes. >> some people might say, what can my religious leader do pastor do what can mira buy do what can my imam do? >> right. what we have to do is come together first as one voice and be able to address the needs,
4:54 pm
economic needs, opportunity, education. we belong to a group that's called the reconcile church. we're trying to find national leaders to come, invest in our community be able to give these young people a hope a dream to be able to prosper. >> a "washington post" article, the city of baltimore is called a churched city. i wonder when it comes to getting people not even just to go to traditional church but to be more involved in their community, also a lot of that has to do with voting. and getting people out to vote to elect the leaders they want to make the change they're calling for. >> absolutely. >> i was just joined by a local radio host here marc who told me voting here last time around was abysmal. 12% participation. >> exactly. >> does that change going forward? >> it has to change. what we have to do as a church is be able to reach all segments of the population. we have the african-american we have the latino, we have the anglo churches. what we need to do is come
4:55 pm
together. we need a multicultural prayer movement that consists of over 400 churches in this region. there are over 2,000 churches in baltimore, alone. the church has such a tremendous power and impact if we can just get it together and be able to love invest and give to our community. >> angel nunez, thanks for being with me. appreciate it. >> you take care yourself. >> you, too. i want to get to my colleague deb feyerick in new york for a check of other stop stories. >> thanks, poppy. checking some of the weekend's top stories retired neurosurgeon ben carson who lived in baltimore for many years tells sinclair broadcasting quote, i'm announcing my candidacy for president of the united states of america. but wait. carson's spokesperson tells cnn the comment was not carson's official announcement of his candidacy. carson has scheduled an announcement tomorrow in his hometown of detroit. and some boxing fans are already calling for a rematch between victor floyd whymayweather
